Inter Miami CF has tapped HOK and Arquitectonica as its architects to design a new 25,000-seat stadium for the MLS expansion club, due to begin competition in 2020.
After numerous false starts, the club most recently selected to build its stadium on land that’s part of Miami Freedom Park – a $1 billion, 73-acre mixed-use development with 750 hotel rooms as well as one million square feet of office and commercial space.
In November, voters approved Inter Miami’s project on the city-owned site. However, since that vote, a lawsuit was filed, claiming violations of lobbying rules. An opening date for the new stadium is contingent on resolution of the lawsuit and city commissioner approval.
In the interim, the club is seeking to play its inaugural season at temporary quarters at Florida International University’s Riccardo Silva Stadium – the current 20,000-seat home of FIU football and soccer.
